Mount Mary has long been considered one of Australia's most iconic wineries, with a history dating back to the early 1970's when Dr John Middleton established this iconic Yarra Valley winery.
Sam Middleton, the grandson of founder Dr John Middleton is now making the wines at Mount Mary and has clearly risen to the sizeable challenge of taking over this hallowed Yarra Valley winery, with superb quality across their Quintet Cabernets, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Triolet releases.
"45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc, 6% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot. Quintet remains the flagship wine of our estate, representing the initial vision Dr John had when discovering this unique site. It’s hard to remember a Quintet that displayed such lifted aromatics on release as this 2017. The nose is particularly vibrant and fruit forward at this early stage, bursting with aromas of cassis, cherry, plum and chocolate. There is a hint of earth/ undergrowth/cigar box here playing second fiddle to the bright expressive fruit. The palate follows on with a similar theme with flavours of blackcurrant, plum, liquorice and chocolate. The tannins and acid profile give this wine such beautiful structure, purity and persistence through the palate – more so than we’ve seen in a young Quintet for quite some time. We’re extremely excited to see how this wine will evolve over the coming 2-3 decades"- Sam Middleton, Mount Mary Wines.
